What is Peer Integration Coaching?
Integration is the supportive process that involves examining a non-ordinary state experience with curiosity to assimilate any emotions, ideas, or energies that are significant to the journeyer. Altered States Integration Coaches create a safe space through listening and reflection to illuminate the clients inner wisdom. Integration is not a linear process and may involve support groups, journaling, art, and time.
PEER INTEGRATION COACHES
Altered States Integration coaches are highly experienced and come from a variety of backgrounds just like you. Peer coaches are trained in a type of psychological inquiry called Motivational Interviewing that relies on the clients innate ability to problems solve. This helps remove any personal biases the coach may have clearing the path for maximum discovery.
Our integration coaches also have personal experience journeying in non-ordinary states of consciousness and guiding them. We are passionate about psychedelic harm reduction and volunteer at festivals providing psychedelic first aid.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Find Your Answers Here
DOES ALTERED STATES INTEGRATION OFFER PSYCHEDELIC RETREATS?
No, we do not host psychedelic retreats since most substances are illegal worldwide. In the future, we will be adding workshops and retreats exploring legal ways to access altered states of consciousness.
CAN I JOIN AN INTEGRATION CIRCLE IF I’VE NEVER EXPERIENCED AN ALTERED STATE?
While larger, in-person support circles invite non-users to come and participate, because of Altered States small group size we ask that people who are curious about non-ordinary states join us for upcoming webinars and workshops.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Altered States Integration does not provide medical services so we are unable to take insurance. Using peer coaches allows us to keep our integration services affordable.
IS ONLINE INTEGRATION COACHING RIGHT FOR ME?
If you are looking to better understand a recent psychedelic experience or need help staying accountable to the message received during an altered state, then peer integration coaching is right for you.
